Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) grew up in a very wealthy landlord family and received art and drawing lessons at an early age. He always remained closely connected to his homeland Franche-Comté in the east of France, even if he was often drawn to the distance, including to Belgium and the Netherlands. At the request of his parents, he studied law. However, Gustave Courbet increasingly felt the strong urge to assert himself as a painter. He left the province and moved to Paris. Fortunately, his parents supported him financially at the time.

Gustave Courbet often visited the famous Paris Art Museum, the Louvre, to study the works of the famous old masters, to learn from them and to develop. He was particularly fascinated by the paintings by the Dutch, Spanish and Venetian artists. Gustave Courbet sought proximity to other artist colleagues and finally had to realize that it was not easy to gain a foothold in Paris as an unknown painter. With Charles Baudelaire, Courbet met an important poet who also worked as an art critic. Courbet was able to exhibit some of his works in the »Paris Salon«, a very important French art exhibition. A great satisfaction for him and the long-awaited confirmation of his artistic endeavors was the awarding of his painting "After eating in Ornans" in 1849 with a gold medal. Gustave Courbet only opened a painting school for a few months to pass on his artistic experience to the students. Unfortunately, he got into great difficulties in the 1980s due to his membership of the Paris Commune, the city council. His political commitment ultimately led to his doom when he was accused of destroying the famous Vendôme column. Denunciations, a prison sentence of several months and a large fine as compensation for the pillar forced him to flee to Switzerland. At that time he was already struggling with health problems that had robbed him of strength in the last years of his life. Alcohol and resignation made it impossible for him to create outstanding pictures.

Gustave Courbet declined to be called a realistic painter. It was important to him to create art for all strata of the population. He also portrayed ordinary people, the farmers, stone knockers and street boys, in his paintings. In addition to numerous self-portraits, landscapes, peasant and hunting scenes, he created many female nudes, which initially provoked the exhibition visitors. With his bold creation and masterful mastery of painting techniques, he paved the way for the next generation of artists, the Impressionists. © Meisterdrucke
